Question about Microsoft Office XP Professional OEM w/ Publisher 2002 Bundle (M04-00245OEM) for PC

1 Answer

Cannot show hidden text in Word

I hid several paragraphs. Now I want to show them. Word instructions say use the Show/Hide button on the standard toolbar. There is only a "Show" button, which does not provide for undoing a hidden paragraph. No help under "Format," either. No useful buttons among those not already present. Using M'soft Office XP Professional 2002. This particular version was, I am told, made especially for Dell. I am using HP. ??? The only other problem I have met is that the keyboard cannot be shifted to Spanish language.

Remove page break

In Word, change the view to draft mode to display the break. You can then click on the break and delete. The show/hide paragraph function and outline mode also show the page breaks.

Or if that doesnt work please try this

2. In windows explorer, under Folder and Search Options - View - 'Hidden files and folders' should be set to 'Show hidden files and folders?' and "Hide protected operating system files?" should be unchecked.

In Word, I cannot show text that I hid.

If you press the Show button down, it will show all text; if you press it again, it will hide your hidden text. To hide text, click on Format>Font and click the Hidden checkbox. If these do not work, your best bet is to reinstall Word; a file may have gotten corrupted.

Search code in visual basic

If your rows are being displayed or hidden on the form, the easiest way would be to use a filter on that part of the form. The filter would be based on the button being pushed; each button would invoke a different filter.

Make sure that the filter property of the form is ON.

My problem

This is a ENGLISH class, HOMEWORK PROBLEM, not a tech problem. However, you just touch on the most important points in the text. Try to highlight those important parts, then cross out the non-important parts in the original text. Then re-write the paragraphs. But the main thing here is to pay attention in class to your teachers. Then you will know how to do your homework assignments.
